New Environmental Project – The Plastic Tide

We’ve just launched a brand new project – The Plastic Tide
 
The Plastic Tide harnesses the power of drone technology in an innovative and revolutionary way; surveying beaches in a series of beach cleans to capture images, and through the help of citizen science, train computers to remotely detect plastic build-up, with numerous and multi-disciplinary applications. Dr. Erik Van Sebille, world expert on marine litter and Science Adviser to the Plastic Tide, says;
“The Plastic Tide will significantly enhance our understanding of the amount of plastic on coastlines, by trialing revolutionary drone-based automatic detection of the litter. This will aid the creation of a global of inventory of marine plastic pollution, and help identify hotspots, impacts and fate of our plastic.”
